Not crazy about making alimony payments? Make it in a lump sum

Massachusetts man charged with drug crimes

As laws pertaining to drug crimes continue to be strictly enforced, convictions often lead to serious punishments. No matter how small the charges are, drug offenders must act to protect their legal rights and fight for their own best interest.

Illegal drugs are related to crime in many different ways, such as possession, manufacturing and distribution.
